Do you believe that you may have been a victim of an illegal search and seizure? Contact our Warrant Attorneys in Los Angeles immediately!
A search warrant is issued by a judge if the judge upon a showing of probable cause that certain items associated with criminal activity will be found at a certain location. The search warrant gives law enforcement the authority to enter the location and search for those certain items. A search warrant must be specific as to the places search and the items seized.
Our Warrant Attorneys in LA have had many clients that have been victims of an illegal search and seizure.
Unless a search is authorized by your consent, incident to a LAWFUL arrest, or under exigent circumstances or other recognized exceptions, it must be executed pursuant to a valid search warrant and probable cause is the key to a valid search warrant. As your search warrant lawyer we will thoroughly investigate the underlying search warrant and determine to see whether there was actual probable cause and see if the law enforcement violated any requirements as to executing and conducting a search warrant.
If the officer merely relied on an informant for the information that led to probable cause, the judge has to be informed of some of the actual facts that led the informant to his or her conclusion of the criminal activity.
We will do whatever we can to find any cracks as to the search warrant. As your Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney we may file a Motion to Quash to challenge the affidavit (underlying probable cause) or a Motion to Traverse to challenge the accuracy and truth of the affidavit. Depending on the circumstances of your specific situation, we will be able to strategize effectively and determine which motion to file on your behalf.
